REVIEW: Chicane - Serendipity taken from The Place You Can’t Remember, The Place You Can’t Forget on Modena / Armada Music

Whenever dance music lovers stumble on the wondrous world of Chicane for the first time and every moment thereafter, they know they've hit the jackpot. Again, the legendary producer delivers a jaw-dropping, evergreen slice of sonic beauty nothing can parallel. There's no going wrong with 'Serendipity' and it genuinely is a record fans will treasure always.

It’s been a long three years since Chicane emerged with his sixth studio album, ‘The Sum Of Its Parts’. A lot of changes – both personal and otherwise – have come to pass since then and now, the legendary electronic music icon gives fans a taste of what’s to come through ‘Serendipity’, the first single of the U.K. staple act’s forthcoming seventh studio album: ‘The Place You Can’t Remember, The Place You Can’t Forget’ (due on June 8).

Reflecting those changes while still appealing to the older followers of Chicane’s trailblazing music, ‘The Place You Can’t Remember, The Place You Can’t Forget’ sees the return of the soul-searching, achingly addictive sounds of classic Chicane, recorded in the new Modena 4 studio with a host of guest vocalists and writers. A collection of songs rather than a collection of streams, the album includes – of course – today’s discovery ‘Serendipity’, an evergreen slice of sonic beauty that features the songwriting skills and vocal performance of Tracy Ackerman, known for her work on Chicane’s 2000 classic ‘No Ordinary Morning’. 

From the ethereal opening of ‘Running To The Sea’ and the pure exuberance of ‘Nirvana’ to the coolness of ‘Ten Deep’, the plaintive ‘I Came Here For You’ and the poignant memories of heartbreak in ‘Fear I Must First Let You Go’, ‘The Place I Can’t Remember, The Place I Can’t Forget’ has something for all emotions. It resonates with the Chicane of old and the Chicane of now, and will prove a truly memorable and unforgettable offering able to withstand the test of time whenever it comes knocking.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"] Chicane is definitely the true mastermind of melodic chill out trance who doesn't afraid to experiment and attempt to widen his appeal and reach to various audiences.  Serendipity is classy emotion chill out piece with great vocals and deep thoughtful lyrics combined with calming relaxing cinematic sonic soundscapes that you simply want to dive into and discover the true meaning of life and happiness. Definitely a brilliant taster of his forthcoming awaited with anticipation album. #PureGold Love IT [/content]
